Council News & Services, Youth Services

 

Hailsham Town Council’s youth project team’s weekly Job Café continues to benefit 16 to 25-year olds seeking advice and practical support in looking for employment, education and training,

Informal drop-in sessions for young people operate at the Square Youth Café, 1 Market Square on Fridays from 11am to 2pm.

Youth project staff are on hand to offer support with job searches and applications, interview skills, how to write effective CVs and what employment or apprenticeship opportunities are available in the area.

As well as general careers guidance and help with finding job vacancies, young people will also receive advice on job training, and information about support agencies is also available.

“Staff are available to offer career advice, interview skills, information on how to write good CVs and covering letters, as well as how to fill out application forms and complete applications online,” said Nina Santi, deputy youth project coordinator at Hailsham Town Council.

“We are running these informal and relaxed drop-in sessions for young people who are looking to improve their employability or have wider questions about what careers or jobs are available to them now and in the future.”

Town Mayor Councillor Nigel Coltman said: “These are tough times for jobseekers – and even more so for young people starting out in the job market.”

“The Town Council’s youth project team is very proud to provide safe and suitable activities for young people who are attending The Square and, through the weekly Job Cafe, are able to help towards the development of young people’s skills, confidence and knowledge to improve their employability skills and enable them to reach their potential in adult life.”
